We are growing a network of faith organizations as part of the Boston Ujima Project, which organizes neighbors, workers, business owners and investors to bring a community-controlled Boston-based economy to fruition.
We are on our way! And you are the most important part of the equity-equation! Whether you came to the first kick-off event in Nov 2018, or are engaging for the first time with us, or anywhere in between, we urge you to engage with us as a broader body of faith communities. We gather to encourage making commitments to the equitable distribution of decision-making power and resources in our city, and to grow and be joyful together, in pursuit of racial and economic justice. All are welcome,including but not limited to members, staff and leaders of congregations and faith organizations.
- When: Thursday, November 21st, 6-8pm
- Where: Jamaica Plain Cohousing, 65 Cornwall St., Boston
- Dinner provided.
- RSVP today via Eventbrite
- Spread the word via Facebook to folks in your or other organizations/congregations who you want to be part of Ujima’s work!
- Co-hosted by Kavod, a community of young adults committed to local social justice organizing and meaningful Jewish practice.

What to expect:
At this event, we will learn from and celebrate how some faith communities have been engaging with Ujima, including over $80,000 of direct investment into the Ujima Investment Fund, and over $15,000 (and counting) purchased of goods and services from the Ujima Business Alliance businesses! You did this, and we can continue to do so much more together!
If you have made purchases with Ujima’s businesses or partners, please record them on this Google Form. See our list of partners and businesses at www.UjimaBoston.com.
This will also be the space to meet some of the Ujima business owners, and familiarize and network with the other efforts within the Ujima ecosystem.
And what would be a faith communities meeting if we didn’t have a little fun and laughter together, to foster goodwill and ignite collaboration among the faith communities represented amongst us.
